At one point it was a Goodwill thrift store, then last fall it served as the Halloween Super Store. Now the building at 650 El Camino Real in Belmont is "ground zero" for Democrats in San Mateo County.
With both parties' national conventions taking place over the next two weeks, the campaign season is in full swing and the local Democratic headquarters will be buzzing with activity.
Volunteers at the San Mateo County Democratic Headquarters will be making phone calls, walking precincts and coordinating a variety of events for local and national candidates, including the Charlotte By the Bay event to view the Democratic National Convention on TV.
In addition to Obama/Biden information, buttons, bumper stickers, signs and memorabilia, the SMC Democratic Party Headquarters also has information on propositions and local candidates on the November ballot, including school district and special district candidates.
To see a full schedule of events, go to www.sanmateodemocrats.org.
The San Mateo County Democratic Party Headquarters is open daily through the Nov. 6 Presidential election.
